Dear Santa

Dear Santa,
Thank you for my cool new Stunt Puppy StuntRunner leash in the custom size for a big guy like me






and I really liked my Wonky Dog, it was great fun ripping it apart.

and an awesome Christmas collar from Bertha


 


For breakfast CM made me my own little pancake.

I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas!

Ouch 2

Talk about Deja Vu: http://blinddogsrule.blogspot.com/2010/01/10510.html
If you read the post from January it is exactly what happened tonight but instead of Dr. Gerity I saw Dr. Phillips and it was early enough that I got an appointment so it didn't have to be an emergency visit. AP says I am not allowed to play on that field with Nala when the weather is cold and the ground is so hard. Everyone was so nice and fussed over me and fed me cookies but 3 Dr. visits in 2 days is too much for me so I am going to bed.

9 Month Checkup and What is That on My Butt?

I got to see Dr. Weigt at Animal Eye Care Associates today and she checked my Bionic Eye and was really happy at how it is doing. She checked the pressure in my good/bad eye and it was up a little but nothing to worry about. She said my eye is stable and should not cause me any problems. I still have to get a drop of medicine in it every night which I don't like much but I can deal with it if it keeps my eye in check. Everyone fussed over me and I got some treats so it was all good!
Next up was Dr. Daher at Greater Annapolis Veterinary Hospital to check out this cyst thing on my left hind end, right before my tail. It has been there for a long time but lately I am very interested in it. To get to it I have to twist myself like a pretzel and then I walk around and around in a circle bouncing off the walls and the sofa. I almost fell down the steps so AP said we had to come get it checked out. Dr. Daher gave me some numbing medicine and then flushed it out and packed it with some other numbing stuff and some medicine to help it heal. Everyone fussed over me and I got some more treats but I was ready to be done with Dr.'s for the day.

Whew What a Weekend

I was so busy this weekend.
Saturday morning I played with Nala at the park and later when I went out for my afternoon walk I ran into Santa Claus. The fire department was driving him through the neighborhood so that the reindeer can rest up for the big night. He was right down the street with all my kids handing out candy canes. I got to say hi and see my kids which was very cool. I told him I was sorry about my temper tantrum the other night and I would be good the rest of the week.




On Sunday morning I ran into my friend Jim who always has treats in his pocket and he gave me 2. When I got to the park Cooper was there. I haven't played with Cooper in a long time and we had so much fun.When I got home I wrestled with CM and followed her around the house for most of the morning. Around 2 I wanted to go for another walk so AP and I went out for about an hour or so. None of my friends were out and I didn't want to go home so I kept trying to back track and go down streets we don't normally go down.AP finally caught on that I was stalling and made me go home. She reminded me that I had told Santa I would be good.

Polar Dog

AP here: If you follow the blog regularly you know that Tonka and I walk everyday, twice a day, pretty much no matter what. The only things that can stop us are illness, injury or major weather event. We are like the postal service! Usually the illness or injury if on my side and our awesome support team of friends and family make sure that Tonka still gets his walks. Tonka considers major weather events to be things like tornado, flash flood or heavy rain (Tonka hates the rain). We don't walk in tornado's or flash floods but we do walk in rain and in a downpour I have a golf umbrella that I hold over the Tonka Man and a great raincoat for me.  If you share your life with a polar Pyrenees then you also know that they think bitter cold windy days are the best with only one thing that can top temperatures in the teens- SNOW! My first Pyr Myatuk would go out and dance when the snow first starting falling. Just the sight of the wonderful white flakes falling would set her into the happy dance. With Tonka it has to actually be on the ground otherwise it's just cold rain falling since he can't see the difference. Yesterday was the first snow here and he was beside himself. He ran and pranced, head and tail as high as he could get them unfortuantely it was too dark to get a picture of us running down the street to get to the field to play but believe me he was one happy boy.

Temper Tantrum

AP here: Tonka decided that he wanted the empty coffee cup from the recycling bag in the kitchen. He picked it out of the bag and walked into the living room with it. I took it away from him and he disappeared back into the kitchen. There he proceeded to throw a fit until he wore himself out. This is what CM and I found when we went into the kitchen.

Happy Birthday Tonka

AP here: Today Tonka is approximately 3 years old. When I adopted him he was about 4 months old so the staff at Greater Annapolis gave him Pearl Harbor Day as his birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TONKA MAN!

Stick Fu

I love sticks and have become quite good at a form of martial arts known to dogs as Stick Fu. I spent this morning practicing at the field.






AP gets mad when I accidently hit her in the legs with the stick!

Middleburg Christmas Parade 2010

I had a great time today at the parade. All my friends were there both human and Pyrenees. I walked with AP and CM walked my first girlfriend Bertha.
Thats Bertha with her mom Nancy in the red coat.
There were 54 of us big white dogs in the parade including Mr. Bean in his cart.

I was very tired at the end of the day since AP and I had already went for a walk at 5:00am so I fell asleep in the Wylie Wagg store using some of my new friends as a pillow.
